    Default The Great Vancouver Island Blizzard 2006

    HAHAHA my sister just moved to Victoria, BC from Calgary to get away from this kind of weather



    Vancouver Island (Reuters)


    Day 1 - Vancouver Island Blizzard 2006 -
    Chilled Vancouver Islanders faced their first day of winter hell today, as
    6-8 inches of the peculiar white stuff fell, bringing the island to its
    knees and causing millions of dollars worth of damage to the marijuana
    crops.
    Scientists suspect that the substance is some form of frozen water
    particles and experts from Saskatchewan are being flown in. With
    temperatures dipping to the almost but not quite near zero mark, Islanders
    were warned to double insulate their lattes
    before venturing out.
    Ladysmith police recommended that people stay inside except for
    emergencies, such as running out of espresso or biscotti to see them
    through the Island's most terrible storm to date. The local Canadian Tire
    reported that they had completely sold out of fur-lined sandals.

    Drivers were cautioned to put their convertible tops up, and several have
    been shocked to learn that their SUV's actually have four wheel drive,
    although most have no idea how to use it.

    Weary drivers faced soggy sushi, and the threat of frozen breast implants.
    Although Dr. John Blatherwick, of the Coastal Health Authority reassured
    everyone that most breast implants were perfectly safe to 25 below,
    down-filled bras are flying off the shelves at Mountain Equipment Co-op.

    "The government has to do something," snarled an angry Trevor Warburton.
    "I didn't pay $540,000 for my one bedroom condo in Victoria so I could sit
    around and be treated like someone from Toronto."

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Too funny! It sounds like the article is really taking the piss out of the islanders! They've had it too good for too long.

    My brother lives on the northern part of the island, and their roads were out for days.

    No picnic in Vancouver either. Most people can't drive in the snow, but they sure try (with disastrous results).

    I live in New York, all their activities and daily routines sound perfectly respectable to me, lol!

    And that condo price sounds about right, what a bargain.
